The Office for National Statistics (ONS) carries out a census to
find out more about the people who live in England and Wales and
about the make-up of local neighbourhoods.

questionnaires for around 25 million households to complete, asking
about work, health, national identity, citizenship, ethnic
background, education, second homes, language, marital status and

used to build a picture of today’s society.
